SNAPS (Special Needs and Parent Support) is a charity which supports children with additional needs and their families through the provision of rebound therapy, hydrotherapy (both delivered by highly trained paediatric physiotherapists), swimming and play for the whole family. This play might be music therapy, music for fun, dance, sing and sign, boccia, soft play or arts and crafts. We believe it is important to provide social opportunities for the whole family including siblings; with the child with special needs utilising either hydro or rebound and then having fun with the rest of the family through our other activities. We offer a safe and welcoming environment where your child can benefit from specialist physiotherapy, you can meet other families and you all can play together. You do not need a professional referral to access SNAPS services. We operate between 9.15am and 1.30pm on term time Saturdays at two sites: Penny Field School, Tongue Lane, Meanwood, North Leeds. Penny Field is the North West SILC in Leeds. Hydro, swimming and rebound therapy available. Broomfield School, Broom Place, Belle Isle, South Leeds. Broomfield is the South SILC in Leeds.

Kidz Aware is not-for-profit charity/ social enterprise with 3 core values at our heart: Equality; Inspiring; Embracing. We exist to ensure that all children and adults with a disability have the opportunities to achieve their aspirations in life. We understand first-hand what it means to be a family caring for a disabled child: Gillian Archbold created Kidz Aware in 2006 after her experience of fundraising for medical treatment for her own disabled child, Sabrina. Despite successfully raising the funds required, Sabrina was not able to undergo the treatment and therefore Gillian gifted the money to other disabled children who were suitable for treatments that the NHS could not provide. It was through this experience that Gillian recognised the need for a charity that could support the families of disabled children/Adults and that’s what Kidz Aware has been doing ever since. Gillian and Sabrina still run Kidz Aware together. We believe that everyone can make a valuable contribution to society, but people with disabilities face greater challenges. We want all individuals with any kind of disability to have a voice and be part of a wider solution that supports disability at every level of society. We know what you’re going through […]

The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with brain injury and neurodisability. We deliver rehabilitation, education and community services through skilled teams who work with children and young people aged 0-18, and their families. The Children’s Trust Brain Injury Community Service provides specialist goal-orientated neurorehabilitation delivered in the child’s environment, either at home, in school, or a combination of both settings. Delivered by specialists from a range of clinical backgrounds, we work with the child and their family in a non-intensive, consultative way focusing on the needs which result from an acquired brain injury. These may be social, emotional, cognitive, communicative, and behavioural needs. Our ultimate goal is to maximise the child/young person’s participation in their everyday life. In partnership with Leeds Children’s Hospital, we have a clinical specialist based in the hospital who provides information, education, advice and support to families and other professionals. In addition, we also provide long-term support to the child and their family at key transition stages such as starting school, moving to secondary school or college, starting a new job or leaving home to live independently for the first time. In addition, The Children’s Trust Brain Injury Hub […]
